SAU Vs TN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Last chance for Tamil Nadu to make it into the ensuing stage.
As the league stage encounters draw to a close in Rani Trophy 2019-20, the clamour for a spot in the top 5 of Elite Group A and B has reached a boil. With the top 5 teams from the 9 partaking in the group moving into the ensuing stage of the tournamnet, each side in contention for a berth in the revered quarter-finals will be looking to come hot out of the blocks today.
And with Tamil Nadu vying for one of the remaining two spots in the group, today’s encounter promises to be an edge of the seat thriller. The side don’t only need to win today but pull off a stupendous win, one which should see them amass a bonus point to take them to 26 points in the group.
And while things won’t be easy infront of Saurashtra which has already sealed its spot in the next round, Tamil Nadu will be buoyed by their previous win. They hammered Baroda by an innings and 57 runs to keep their chances of progressing from the group alive, a win which instilled immense momentum in their ranks at the ideal time.
Although Tamil Nadu will leave no stone unturned and punch above their weight in this one, we don’t envision them having enough to defeat Saurashtra. They are up against a side which sits in second spot with the three wins from 7 ties, with this encounter looking set to end in a draw on a batting conducive pitch.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A pinch perfect wicket for the batters, piling the runs on over here is going to be an extremely easy task. The team winning the toss will be looking to step out and bat firs and put on anything above 500 before trying to make the most of the spin conducive conditions on day 4.
